NO EXCUSES! GET IT DONE!Yalden spoke to us in this episode of The BOOM Podcast from his rental car on a three-hour drive to Maine. The previous day was, let’s just say, less than stellar by any means. “Yesterday I had a bad day, but when I say, ‘no excuses – you’ve got to get it done,’ I can’t continue to live in what happened yesterday,” he said. “I can’t continue letting yesterday affect me.” Jeff said he had to get his mind right and realize that today is a new day. “It’s a new opportunity. It’s new students. It’s new teachers. It’s new parents. Here I am north of Portland, Maine. No excuses. Let it go. Move forward.” If you have done the work and gone through Day One through Day Nine, you might be arriving at Day 10 feeling a little bit overwhelmed. “There is so much on your plate. You’ve got the bills. You’ve got friends, sports – your marriage – you’ve got your job. You’ve got this, you’ve got that. I’m no different from you. Everybody else has the same responsibilities. But the bottom line is: Let’s stop making excuses. We have to get it done.” This is not about perfection. It’s about progress, according to Yalden. “Every single day, we are trying to make today better than it was yesterday. We are trying to make tomorrow better than today.” Do you have to create more time in your day? “If it’s important to you, you will maybe get up a little bit earlier. If it’s important to you, you will really focus on your tasks and your time management. If it’s important to you, then you will make it happen.” Is your plan important enough to you to say no to something else? No to going out to dinner? No to spending so much time on social media platforms? “If it’s important to you, you will find the time,” Yalden said. “You will make the time.” If you make the time now to focus on your plan, you will have time to enjoy the fruits of your efforts later. Yalden is a big believer in the magic of the acronym, WIN, or What’s Important Now. “For me, WIN is that I let yesterday be yesterday. I get my head right, because I have a new day. Maybe that’s similar to you as well. Maybe you didn’t have such a great day yesterday, but you woke up this morning – you washed your face, brushed your teeth and did your dance – and you went out and kicked it, just like I have to do – and just like all of our friends and family have to do. We are not victims. We are victors. We are not to be bitter and angry. We are to choose every day to become better.” No Excuses!
